Intense, Great staging, Riveting, Ambitious, Absorbing

Don't see it if You want easy to understand/follow experiences, you can’t walk/run around for hours, you don’t like feeling confused

Riveting, Relevant, Profound, Great staging, Great acting

Entertaining, Delightful, Clever, Funny

See it if You're a big fan of Harry Potter and satire; you want a silly, entertaining show

Don't see it if You aren't a big fan of Harry Potter - you will probably be lost

91
Absorbing, Great acting, Profound, Resonant, Great writing

See it if You want to see great acting in a great show, you want a window into the lives of gay characters during this window of time

Don't see it if You like your theatre light-hearted, you're afraid of the 7.5 hour running time over two parts, but it feels much faster than that

83
Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging

See it if You liked the movie, you want a fun and not too serious time at the theatre, you like to wear pink

Great staging, Riveting, Great singing, Enchanting, Entertaining

Great acting, Enchanting, Slow, Intelligent

See it if You want an interesting, low-key show of a mix of cultures with atypical Broadway music

Don't see it if You're tired or need something upbeat

Also I was tired.

98
Great acting, Relevant, Profound, Absorbing, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see a truly stand-out performance from the lead actor, you want to see a resonant show with an important message

Don't see it if You are troubled by mention of suicide or anxiety, you don't care for stories centered on teenagers

Great staging, Enchanting, Riveting, Confusing, Dizzying

Slow, Great acting

See it if You want a chance to see these two stars, are interested in these early female entrepreneurs of the cosmetics industry

Don't see it if You want memorable songs, true conflict, or you're not interested in a slow paced show

82
Great singing, Enchanting, Delightful

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in over the top personalities or plots surrounding teenage characters

Relevant, Funny, Delightful, Enchanting

Great staging, Great acting, Riveting, Enchanting, Entertaining

See it if You're a big fan of Harry Potter and want more (just don't read the play first!), you want to see spectacle play out in front of you

Don't see it if You expect completely flawless plotlines, you've made the mistake of reading the play first and have decided you hate it

83
Great acting, Intelligent, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if You want to see these great ladies perform. Glenda Jackson and Laurie Metcalf are excellent

Don't see it if You don't like plays that are largely talking pieces, you are offended by brief use of racial insults

Don't see it if you don't like revivals, you can't stand to watch old-style sexism portrayed

Don't see it if You expect a big, full staging.

Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if You want a super-fun, quirky, colorful, happy show. Even if you aren't a big fan of the tv show.

Don't see it if You're looking for serious theatre. Probably also if you actively despise the tv show.

Also I was very skeptical of this and had a hard time convincing myself to ... Read more Read less

Funny, Great staging, Riveting, Resonant, Great acting

See it if You are looking to remember the good side of humanity. That time when we all became closer through shared experience on a global scale.

Don't see it if You have preconceived notions that nothing related to 9/11 should ever become theatre. It's not about 9/11 though, it's about good people.

Also This show lets you feel everything. It's a good mix of reflective and ... Read more Read less
